Set in the Himalaya, Abode of the Gods describes a series of unforgettable journeys among the mountains of Nepal from the farthest east to the farthest west, and many remote places in between. The landscapes, people, sounds and smells are all brought to life as we trek from the steamy foothills to the very heart of the world’s greatest mountain range by way of intimidating gorges and snow-covered passes.
Everest, Annapurna, Langtang and Kangchenjunga may be well-known to inveterate trekkers, but the wonders of other less-travelled districts such as Manaslu, Dolpo, Api and Mugu are also revealed in all their glory through stories that are rich in detail, and whose heroes are the Nepalese people who make each journey a memorable feast.
Whether you’ve trekked in Nepal in the past, dream of trekking there in the future, or simply enjoy armchair travel, Abode of the Gods unfolds the raw beauty of one of the most magical countries on earth, parts of which were changed for ever by the terrible earthquakes and subsequent avalanches of April and May 2015. As a result, all profits from this book will support relief work in remote mountain communities.
Abode of the Gods is a hardback with a dust jacket and contains 288 pages, which includes maps and colour photographs.
